Cherry Blossoms Festival 2012
I almost forgot to write about the most beautiful event in Hirosaki.
I went to Hirosaki Park to see cherry trees. This park is famous for its cherry blossoms. The blossoms of approximately 2600 trees of Someiyoshino (Prunus yedoensis), Yaezakura (double-flowered cherry), and Shidarezakura (weeping cherry tree) are in bloom from late in April to beginning of May every year. At the same time, Cherry Blossoms Festival is held when it is the best time to see the cherry trees.
The cherry trees were in full blossom when I went there.
Tunnel of cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms with Hirosaki castel and a full-blown cherry flowers around the moat. There are such a beautiful view spot at the park. And also cherry blossoms are illuminated in the evening is fantastic.
You should not miss to see it when you come to Hirosaki in Spring.
